Scid and Scid vs Mac: how to copy analysis output?

Usual I highlight the analysis output with touchpad and copy&paste it into a text editor. But Scid 4.7.0 and Scid vs Mac 4.20, clears the analysis output and puts up a message "Click here to see moves".

Is there any way to copy the analysis output?

From the analysis pane icons you can "Add Variation" or "Add All Variations" to the Notation pane.

But this is only the last analysis line. How about the complete list?

Yeah... this is tested more on linux, but this works on Mac , and should work on windows. Highlight the line/text and press command-c/control-c for copy.

You can then select the Edit->PasteVariation feature to add the line.
(Edit - you might have to deselect the Options->Moves->Translate pieces though ?)

If running multiPV, Right clicking the V+ button adds the *second* PV as a variation.

Tried this in Scid vs PC 4.18 (WIN) and it works here, but it needs manually selecting the whole output
and carefully putting the cursor first before the first analysis line in the left.
Simple Ctrl+A and Ctrl+C does not work, also right-click (for possible options) just clears the output like you said.

At least after manually selecting the analysis Ctrl+C can be used and copied to any text file.

Default analysis engine in this Scid version SF240813-64, from the start position:

It would be more comfortable if Ctrl+A would work too.

Thanks a lot, got it on Scid vs Mac now! :D

But not with Scid 4.7.0. Can't highlight the move list in the analysis window.

Ok - i have changed the right-click mode switching to middle-click. Hopefully this will allow windows to have a "Copy text" context menu.
Only taken 10 years to change this silliness, laugh.

Re control-a.. this binding is used to add an empty variation and i mightn't change this as it's probably well used.
Control-A is also used... I will think about it , but probably leave this too. Cheers
